Bob- Was the theater built in 1976? The base itself, as Camp Devens, was opened around World War I, not in 1976. I was on Army Reserve duty there many times between 1957 and 1966 and went to the movies at the “post theater”, which was a typical large wood-frame building,painted pale yellow, and built to standard Army plans. I don’t remember the name of the street on which it was located.
